If you’re one of the people with (valid) concerns about Netflix’s adaptation of Death Note, then today’s your lucky day.Not only is the movie finally available for you to watch (should you choose to do so), there’s also a new clip that perfectly summarises the movie if you can’t be bothered to sit through it all.There are many things about Netflix’s Death Note that ring true to author Tsugumi Ohba and illustrator Takeshi Obata’s original manga—like the unsettling creepiness of the death god Ryuk, voiced in the film by Willem Dafoe, or the eerie, off-kilter quirks of L’s personality.But then there’s the issues with the movie having a vastly different plot than the original, and that persnickety whitewashing issue that Death Note director Adam Wingard can’t quite wrap his head around.For all of the things that Death Note manages to get right in spite of itself, it can be... rough to get through.Rough enough to elicit a reaction very similar to Light’s in the clip below, which is from the scene where he first encounters Ryuk.

Utan det ekonomiska perspektivet kan viktiga beslut få farliga samhällseffekter, enligt forskaren Per Frankelius, Linköpings Universitet.Häromveckan kunde vi läsa ett citat i Ny Teknik av en klimatexpert på WWF: ”Förutom omställningen till en fossilfri ekonomi behöver vi bland annat halvera matsvinnet och köttkonsumtionen och uppnå en mer hållbar konsumtion.” Det var en av minst flera hundra artiklar där begreppet ”hållbar” använts.Från och med 2017 måste alla stora företag ”hållbarhetsrapportera”, enligt ett regeringsbeslut.Efter att ha analyserat debatten i ett antal år är min slutsats att hållbarhet, i en klar majoritet av resonemangen, bara relateras till miljön.Under det senaste året lyfter dock fler fram den sociala dimensionen.Varför är det då så viktigt att inte ensidigt fokusera på klimat, miljö och sociala dimensioner i hållbarhetsdebatten?

We can all be a bit irrational and emotional when it comes to making decisions, much of the time without any reason or explanation.Enter Lab, a London-based digital agency, who have come up with a unique psychology model that helps them to empathise with all aspects of decision-making – the rational, the irrational and the emotional, thereafter giving them an animal (monkey, lion or dog) with similar traits.The monkey is a contextual thinker and wants to make a difference and leave a legacy.The lion is also a rational thinker, and is powerful, paying great attention to their thoughts and judgements.Finally, the dog is an emotional thinker unlike the other two, mostly paying attention to their feelings in relation to other people, and is loving and trusting.The test launched on Lab’s site today (23 August), so of course I took the test myself out of curiosity, and was told I was a monkey.

A group of a little more than a hundred people active in the robotics and artificial intelligence, has written an open letter to the UN urging the international community to prohibit the development of the so-called evading killer robots and other autonomous weapons.In the letter, which, among other things, signed by Elon Musk, to stand, among other things:"Lethal autonomous weapons threaten to become the third revolution in warfare.Once developed, they will permit armed conflict to be fought at a scale greater than ever, and at timescales faster than humans can comprehend.These can be weapons of terror, weapons that despots and terrorists use against innocent populations, and weapons hacked to behave in undesirable ways.We do not have long to act.

Daily Mail and General Trust (DMGT), publisher of the Daily Mail, is seeking to dispose of its commuter-friendly free title the Metro for as much as £35m as part of efforts to ‘streamline’ its business.First published back in 1999 the Metro is expected to command a price of between £25 and £35m and the sale, dovetailing with a strategic review of the public transport distributed title.According to the Times the sale is being orchestrated by new DMGT chief executive Paul Zwillenberg with the aim of removing distractions from its core activities at the Daily Mail, a process which has already seen it reduce its stake in financial publisher Euromoney to 49% and offload Elite Daily, a video-sharing provider geared toward millennials.No interested suitors have yet emerged for the property although print veteran David Montgomery, Trinity Mirror and Johnston Press are all cited by the Times as being front runners for the title, with Montgomery emerging as something of a wild card having already been linked to a potential takeover of the Daily Express and Daily Star.

Reinventing the email experience is an area numerous startups have tried to tackle over the years, with some apps focused more on triage, others on making a better desktop alternative to Outlook, and still more aiming to re-envision email as a mobile-first product, among other ideas.A new startup called Superhuman, from the founder of Gmail add-on Rapportive acquired in 2012 by LinkedIn, is different.Instead of giving email a new coat of paint, Superhuman’s underlying technology is designed to speed up everything about using email, while also bundling in features like snoozing, scheduling, read statuses, undo send, insights from social networks, and more.The startup was founded by Rahul Vohra, who incorporated Superhuman as soon as he left LinkedIn, where he worked for two years following Rapportive’s acquisition.At LinkedIn, the product had shifted away from supporting other social networks – a decision Vohra admits he made knowing that those features – like its connections to Facebook and Twitter – wouldn’t receive ongoing maintenance.A product like Gmail couldn’t do this, because it needs to serve over a billion users – that means supporting older computers, out of date browsers, email over slower internet connections, and so on.

Even two similar-looking cells that are supposed to work together in the same tissue might express completely different traits, and make different proteins.Being able to quickly classify lots of cells quick and efficiently has been a difficult task, and previous methods have required looking at one cell at a time, according to a University of Washington press release.But a team of UW researchers have devised a method to quickly and cheaply determine subtle differences between the different types of cells in an organism.They’ve only tested it on worms, but it could one day be used for bigger things.The researchers think, for example, that scientists could use their method to create an atlas “to define the molecular state of every cell throughout the life cycle of C. elegans,” they write in the paper published today in the journal Science.But, with scaling, other organisms—like humans—might come next.

This makes the car especially important to the company, as it offers an early opportunity to create life-long customers.Finding a balance between versatility, features, and affordability has always been the core concept behind the Fit, and it’s a mission that continues on with the 2018 Honda Fit as the automaker looks to keep the car at the top of its game with a mid-cycle refresh.After a few years on the market, Honda was looking to breathe new life in this subcompact and turned to customer feedback for direction, adding “more emotional appeal, both in styling and driving dynamics,” according to Brett Watanabe, Honda’s product planner for the Fit.Along with an updated exterior and reworked suspension, the latter of which includes revised damper tuning and additional chassis bracing throughout the vehicle for more rigidity, the 2018 Fit benefits from tech upgrades like an available seven-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.Also available for the first time in the Fit is the Honda Sensing suite, which includes lane keep assist, collision mitigation braking, and other active safety features.Regardless of which trim level is chosen, the Fit’s power plant remains unchanged from last year — a naturally aspirated and direct injected 1.5-liter DOHC i-VTEC motor that generates 130 horsepower and 114 pound-feet of torque.

Etelä-Korean presidentti Moon Jae-inin mukaan maa tulee estämään sodan kaikin mahdollisin keinoin, uutisoi uutistoimisto Reuters."Etelä-Korea on ainoa maa, joka päättää sotilaallisista toimista Korean niemimaalla, eikä kukaan muu voi päättää hyökkäyksestä ilman Etelä-Korean hyväksyntää", Jae-in sanoi vuosipäiväpuheessa, jolla juhlisti Etelä-Korean vapautumista Japanin vallasta vuonna 1945.Jae-inin mukaan maan hallitus pistää kaiken peliin, jotta sodalta vältytään.Sanasota Pohjois-Koreaa johtavan Kim Jong-unin ja Yhdysvaltain presidentti Donald Trumpin välillä on herättänyt viime viikkoina pelkoa vakavasta hyökkäyksestä.Pohjois-Korean ydinaseohjelman kehitys on myös aiheuttanut huolta ympäri maailmaa.Jännitteet Korean niemimaalla helpottivat hieman jo aiemmin tiistaina, kun Kim Jong-un ilmoitti jäädyttävänsä suunnitelmat Yhdysvalloille kuuluvan Guamin saaren pommittamisesta.

On Monday, SpaceX is poised to end a 40-day launch drought in the United States with a cargo run to the International Space Station.The commercial space outfit will fire off its 12th resupply service mission for NASA from Kennedy Space Center using a fresh Falcon 9 rocket.On top, a Dragon capsule with over 6,400 pounds of supplies—a typical haul could include a variety of toilet paper (the Russians prefer a rougher texture while the Americans opt for a softer touch), fresh socks, and most importantly, tortillas.Minutes after the booster delivers SpaceX’s Dragon to a preliminary orbit, it will attempt a return flight for touchdown at Landing Zone 1 on Florida’s space coast.Along with the groceries, ISS cargo drops have included hardware like an espresso machine, a handy 3-D printer, and even a relatively huge inflatable module currently being accessed and tested by the crew.In addition to the essentials, Dragon will be carrying enough resources to aid in over 250 research projects.

The De-Jargonizer can help scientists communicate more clearly and helps the public better follow scientific advances.But every now and then, while reading up on a recent report about epigenetics or convolutional neural networks, we run into scientific slang that sends us to the dictionary.These pieces of jargon, while often useful for experts, can make the rest of us feel like outsiders.Luckily there’s now a new tool that helps scientists adapt their jargon for a broader audience.Developed by researchers at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology and Holon Institute of Technology (HIT), the aptly named De-Jargonizer is available for free online.You won’t understand it anyway.’”
